Partner with Texas agricultural groups to make Texas the nation's leader in agriculture, 

to keep Texas cotton the leading cash crop in our state, 

and to continue to head the nation in cotton production. 

Advocating for the southwest region of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas, 

we provide a platform of communication to benefit the movement of cotton, 

facilitate the formulation of trade policy and furnish an autonomous arbitration system in the state, 

to advance and protect the economic, political and social interests of our members.

"Our members merchandise the cotton produced

by the many thousands of cotton growers in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. 

Our members provide a ready market for the producers' cotton

and maintain a steady supply of cotton for textile mills around the world. 

We underwrite the risk from the time and the place

the producer elects to sell his product

until the time the foreign or domestic customer requires delivery.

It is our responsibility to deliver the cotton

as efficiently and as economically as possible,

and at the same time permit the producer to realize

the maximum return for his effort. "
